Quincy, CA – Two open houses have been planned regarding the Plumas National Forest Over-snow Vehicle (OSV) Use Designation Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The DEIS discloses the comparative analysis of options being considered in designating snow areas and trails, and snow trails where grooming would occur, for public OSV use on the Plumas National Forest.
The comment period for the DEIS began on Oct. 26 with comments accepted for 45 days thereafter. Comments will be considered in the development of the Final Environmental Impact Statement. A decision on the project will be made following the completion of a final EIS, expected in April 2019.
Plumas National Forest staff will be available to discuss the difference in alternatives displayed in the DEIS at the following times:
Nov. 29 – Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds/Tulsa Scott Pavilion, 204 Fairground Road, Quincy, CA - 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Dec. 1 – La Porte Fire Hall, La Porte, CA – 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
More information, including the DEIS, maps and opportunities for comment, is available at http://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=47124 .
